Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) posted a series of tweets on Tuesday afternoon in which she accused President Trump’s “short-sighted” military policies in Iraq “led to our embassy being besieged.”
“The problems created by Trump’s impulsive, erratic military action/foreign policy are again on display, this time in Iraq. Trump’s military strike against Iranian militia was impulsive, short-sighted, and lacked strategic purpose. It has led to our embassy being besieged and undermined our relationship with the Iraqi government and people. Serving the interests of Saudi Arabia and Jihadists like AQ [Al-Qaeda], Trump is taking us deeper and deeper into mid-east quagmire,” Gabbard tweeted.
